Gift shopping hasn't really started

Aside from three gifts, that is. My husband's family members have exchanged lists of what we all want for the holidays. Yes, we're practical that way. We just email each other "So-and-so wants these, and so-and-so wants those, and I want these..." and we just pick what we give. That way, everyone gets what they want. It's not a surprise but it definitely makes gift shopping easier. Plus, everyone anticipates opening their gifts because everyone gets exactly what they want.

But my parents-in-law... They want nothing because they already have everything. What do you give people who have everything? Chuvaness suggested flowers. I have always believed beautifully framed photos make a great gift. Photos of the recipient, not the giver!

What's on my list? Well... I want a lot. Here are a few:
Haagen Dazs
Kate Spade Sutton Place Marielly
Mulberry Bayswater

Lanvin Eclat d'Arpege
A weekend at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel
Creme de la Mer 
Jewelmer pearls
Karen's Kitchen Red Velvet Cake

Hmmm. My wish list is a bit pricey. Well, that's why I work hard! These are the things I want to buy for myself. I don't really want to ask others to get them for me (Yes. Really, Vince!). I like it that I can buy myself stuff. Used to be a time I couldn't even buy anything.

What's on your list?


  1. I would love to have this one for Christmas :)

  2. Hamil: "What do you want for Christmas?"
    Me: "Nothing."
    Hamil: "I can't give you nothing."
    Me: "I'm serious. If you get me something, I'll be upset."
    (This conversation kind of goes around in circles.)

    That's my standard reply to people. I have too much stuff. The only things I REALLY want are big-ticket items--a car, a trip to Europe, my own house.

    I think I ended up agreeing to getting books.

  3. Oooh! Lanvin Eclat D'Arpege is my favorite too. I hoarded it at Marshall's for super cheap.

    At the top of my list is nothing material... just good health for me and my baby when I deliver next year.

    Hmmm, but in this material world... maybe a Burberry night-out purse will do. :p
